"today in the bay's" bob redell live in the castro district following the latest developments. i believe you're in the bay view, though, not the castro, last weekended fatal shooting by police officers. >> good morning, we're in the castro district, in the bayview at 6:00, san francisco police chief greg suhr with supervisor
coen will meet to address over concerns of a police shooting death of a 19-year-old man, a shooting police say was justified. but there are over 150 people here yesterday who would beg to differ. at least one of them made their feelings known by breaking this window at bank of america branch at castro and 18th. whoever good this isn't the only one police say got out of hand. officers ended up arresting 35 people during last night's protest march started at dolores park made its way to castro. they smock bombed muni station, as they passed mission police station someone through a hammer at officers. no one was hurt. many people in the community want more police accountability and independent investigation after what happened there saturday afternoon. this is when kenneth harding was shot and killed by sfpd. the aftermath captured. you should see it on cell phone video, angry people surrounding
officers after the shooting with harding on the ground there lying there dying. two officers tried to stop harding at the muni bus station because he didn't have a transfer ticket. police say he took off running and started firing at police officers. at least one of those officers responded, shot back hitting harding who later died at a hospital. turns out kenneth harding was on parole and a person of interest in a deadly shooting that took place a week ago today in seattle. a woman there was killed in that shooting. there's been a lot of outrage since saturday afternoon's shooting death of harding. apparently on sunday there was a group of young people attacking muni bus drivers throwing objects at them slightly injuring one of them. again, taupe, a community meeting held at sfpd, 6:00 at the bayview opera house not far from the actual shooting itself that took place over the weekend. reporting live, bob redell,
"today in the bay." >> we'll continue to follow this story. thank you, bob. in the meantime san francisco police say they have more evidence that could prove that shooting was justified. they say 19 year old kenneth harding had gun residue on his hand. they say that would suggest he did, in fact, fire at officers saturday. police also point to this video which shows what looks like a gun on the sidewalk. they say it is harding's gun. people in jail in connection with the murder of a union city mother and the burning of her body. we spoke to oakland homicide and they tell us they are not releasing the suspects' names or mug shots at this time. they arrested the two men in east oakland yesterday. someone killed 21-year-old woman and set her body on fire in the middle of the street last week. she was the mother of a 3-year-old. the funeral for her is scheduled for friday morning. new morning the chp is looking into a deadly
hit-and-run in east richmond. a car hit a man who stood in the westbound lanes of interstate 80 near mcbride avenue last night. the white chevy car kept going and exited onto mcbride. chp says several more cars hit the victim before emergency crews could even get there. anyone with information is asked to call the chp. 6:05 new video in the crash and east bay, car smashes into the back of a big rig. the accident happened after 2:00 this morning on westbound 580 at the scales in livermore. you've got to check out this video. the car ended up wedged underneath the back side of this big rig of the rig then dragged the car for several hundred yards before it stopped. medics airlifted one person to the hospital via helicopter. all lanes reopen before 5:00 this morning. a new study out this morning suggests major budget cuts are causing big problems in policing some east bay cities.
that's doubling response times in some cases. "today in the bay's" christie smith live in martinez with more on the study and impact it has on the people who live in the east bay. good morning, christie. >> good morning. when you come to the courthouse in martinez or jail you find quite a few deputies working. a new study shows the sheriff's department in contra costa county is having a hard time with all the budget cuts. it has done things like forced 50 sworn officers out. they were laid off. this is also reductions in patrol and other services and even standard response times for the majority of top priority calls are hard to meet. instead of the five minutes that is the goal, the reality, according to this study, is closer to eight minutes and 39 seconds. the study overseen by a county-based group ensuring
adequate services of it's not just the sheriff's department they looked at, they looked at police agencies across the county. they found they are doing things such as cutting special crime fighting units, closing substations, driving their cars longer, just to keep patrol officers out on the streets. now, among the suggestions to fix it, taking a look at the six cities that have big unincorporated areas nearby like san pablo, pleasant hill, brendwood, concord, antioch, walnut creek. the suggestion there, consider annexation, that would mean higher taxes for residents there. that certainly might be controversial. the county is going to take a closer look at this on august 10th. they are also going to be taking public comment for people interested. again, that's august 10th at the board of supervisors chambers here in martinez. reporting live in martinez, christie smit christie smith. >> thank you, christie. rescuers will try again to find
a husband and wife and maybe one of their chrn who may have slipped into a yosemite waterfall plunging 300 feet onto rocks below. rangers at yosemite park still don't know how many hikers may have been swept over the falls or how it may have happened in the first place. they tell one of our sister stations they saw a man and woman climb over the safety rail and put their feet in the water and then call for their kids to join them. campers say they saw three people fall do the river. >> when they fell, i actually saw a head pop out and go back in. it was -- i was shocked. i mean, to see people fall from that high, and the current. the trail that leads to the waterfall is shut down to visitors while rescuers continue their search. eight people have died so far this year alone in accidents near yosemite's falls.
at&t is getting green light from city leaders to improve its network in the city. the board of supervisors narrowly approved a plan yesterday to install 700 utility boxes around san francisco. it would improve internet, cable, land line phone services. opponents to the proposal say the four foot tall boxes would block pedestrian traffic. they also say it would inconvenience property owners and they are calling them an eyesore. work on the project could begin as early as today. pension reform in san francisco is making its way to the november ballot. the city board of sups unanimously approve placing the proposal in the hand of voters. it would makety workers pay more toward retirement benefits and it would cap benefits received and raise the retirement age. mayor lee says san francisco would save almost $1 billion over a ten-year period.
another measure which should make it to the ballot, he says it would save the city even more money. good morning, 6:09, meteorologist christina loren with a look at your warming up forecast. >> yeah, we've got a little bit of a warm-up. it's only going to last a couple days. that's great news if you've been waiting for summertime. our temperatures have been below seasonal averages for just about 10 days now. we had some really cold days last week, although mid july and this week we're looking towards a couple hot days. 95 degrees. that's pretty hot in livermore. high pressure is the reason why, can see it in the eastern pacific, clouds arcing up and around that strong ridge. as we head to the next 24 hours, this guy will stay put but then changes on the way friday through the weekend, an area of low pressure, see this trough digging in here. that's going to cool us back down to the 80s. we're looking at a really interesting pattern. if you're looking for the cool weather we've got it for you and the hot stuff as well. a little bit of something for

last night's protest march was more disruptive than anything to the point they arrested 35 people. the march started at dolores park when they arrived here in the castro. protesters smoke bombed the muni station here and disrupted service along market. at the mission police station someone threw an hammer at officers. no one was hurt. marchers demanding more police accountability after saturday's shooting death of kenneth harding. two officers had tried to stop harding at the muni station in bayview because he didn't have a proper transfer ticket. harding ran and started firing his gun at officers. at least one of the officers shot back, hit harding. as you can see in the cell phone video after the shooting harding is laying on the ground while an angry crowd surrounds police and started yelling at them. he ended up dying later at the hospital. harding was on parole and wanted for questioning in a shooting
death of a young woman in seattle. there's been anger. over the weekend a young group of people apparently attacked a couple muni bus drivers by throwing objects at them slightly injuring one of them. so again, a community meeting called tonight by san francisco police. san francisco supervisor will be there at 6:00 at the bayview opera house not far from the actual site of the shooting itself. reporting live in san francisco, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> no doubt tonight's meeting is going to attract quite a crowd. okay. thanks, bob. also this morning san francisco police say gunpowder residue on harding's right hand proves he fired at officers before he was killed. this video here shows what police say is harding's gun on the ground near where he was shot and killed. 6:33, a south bay woman in jail this morning accused of trying to kidnap a toddler by

strained, deputies work here, he sees them doing more with less, longer lines inside, frustration with cuts across the board. certainly results of this new cannotwide study comes as no surprise to him. the department's recent loss of 50 sworn officers means response times are down from the standard of five minutes to an average now of nearly nine minutes. that according to this study that looked to police departments in the county and found many are doing things like cutting special crime fighting units, closing down substations just to keep their patrol officers on the street. the study also found, though, that crime has declined in the county. we spoke with one resident who says there really are no easy answers. >> in safety issues is a concern. i do have to sometimes question the level or the amount of money
that we spend or whatever. >> now, the study suggests a couple of things that can be done including the six cities that have larger incorporated areas, consider an exing including san pablo, pleasant hill, antioch brentwood, concord, antioch, walnut creek. the county will be talking about this more. if you want to weigh in on it, they are going to have public comment august 10th, board of supervisors chambers here in martinez. reporting live in martinez, christie smith "today in the bay." thank you, christie. the outlook is not good this morning for an east bay teen rescued from a collapsed sand tunnel. the parents of 17-year-old ryan buick say their son will most likely never be able to move on his own again. ryan has been in the hospital since june 25th. that's when he was trapped under
